I like the character, personality they developed along the way. Their own story as it were. This red Alox Farmer has lots to tell. (~);-}
Look at the difference between new and old. The new is a blank canvas, ready to record the story of its new owner.
I like the warmth of old, the whispers of its life through the ages. All it’s triumphs and the scars of its failures
When you hold the old in your hand the testimony to its form, fit and function come to life. You can see how it’s worn in that way that fits your hand and fingers no matter how it’s grasped. Years of use made for a precision wear to fit unmatched by even the most custom fit available.
champ plus. This has sat in my drawer for years. Always seemed to big, yet I carried a Gerber 600 DET daily. This forum has me putting the SAKs back in the pocket like they should be. Think I need a swisschamp though, no pliers stinks.
This knife has made my edc really predictable... This guy is always in the pocket, and the past couple months, it's usually the only knife on me. Compact with nylon scales. Don't miss the plus scales. I was a Spartan fan until I decided to try the Compact, and now they sit in my knife drawer. Whenever I think I miss the small secondary blade, I remember how much I've come to love the combo tool and scissors. Just wish the parcel hook was an awl... Happy and sad at the same time
my first custom. A old Bantam I had kicking around. Still want to satin finish the tools and burn a cross into it, but had to give it some pocket time. Teak scales, about twice as thick as the cellidor for a better grip.
